Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between.
Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.

Data security is a top concern these days. In a world of privacy regulation, intellectual property theft, and cybercrime, ensuring data security and protecting sensitive enterprise data is crucial.
Only a data masking solution can secure vital data and enable outsourcing, third-party analysis, and cloud deployments. But more often than not, masking projects fail. Some of the best data masking tools bottleneck processes and once masked, data is hard to move and manage across the application development lifecycle.
According to a McKinsey study, half of all outsourced projects failed to meet their expected goals – while an Information Week Survey showed that 40% of outsourced projects did not save money! Factors that contribute to these problems include issues with quality, time zone challenges, and added travel expenses, among others.
Security breaches are expensive, costing U.S. businesses an average of $3.5 million per incident, which doesn’t include brand damage or other intangibles. Unfortunately, breaches are highly likely to happen, with 87% of organizations experiencing a breach in the past 12 months.
Data, whether it’s intellectual property or personal data, needs to be protected. Dell Data Protection solutions provide encryption, malware protection, and authentication for Dell and non-Dell products, to equip businesses with a complete, easy-to-manage, end-user security solution.
Adversaries and defenders are both developing technologies
and tactics that are growing in sophistication. For their part,
bad actors are building strong back-end infrastructures
with which to launch and support their campaigns. Online
criminals are refining their techniques for extracting money
from victims and for evading detection even as they continue
to steal data and intellectual property.
It was recently found that most Global 2000 organisations have failed to completely remediate Heartbleed. This leaves these organisations vulnerable to cyberattacks, future brand damage, and intellectual property loss.

In this white paper you will learn how data classification can be one of the most cost-effective methods for ensuring the value of data is maximized while still being used securely and how it can be a critical component to successfully govern information at an enterprise.
Many breaches happen because of compromised privileged user accounts. Risks spread like wildfire in the dynamic traditional, virtualized and cloud environments common in enterprises today. One improperly authorized privileged account can cause widespread and irreparable damage to an organization’s infrastructure, intellectual property and brand equity, leading to sudden drops in market value, broad organizational disruption and costly compliance penalties. Effectively managing privileged access across your hybrid enterprise is an imperative to reducing security and compliance risks.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
In property and casualty insurance, closing new business quickly is key. The longer you leave documents on the kitchen table for signature, the higher the risk of drop-off. Today, people are online.

This eBook shows you how P&C companies of all sizes are using electronic signature technology get documents securely signed online – on any mobile device or computer, from anywhere, in minutes.
Hotels and resorts with function space may well have an opportunity to boost their
overall property revenue, given the escalating demand for function space and the
fact that many of them have already maximized the value of their guest rooms
through sophisticated revenue management capabilities. Success generally starts
with a next-generation technology solution that can empower sales and catering
personnel. Success also requires having in place the right organizational resources,
business processes and performance metrics.
Information is the engine of business growth in the digital age. Market intelligence, customer information, intellectual property and other data can be harnessed to create a quantifiable competitive advantage for a company and lay the path for future expansion. Yet as critical as data can be, the sweeping year-over-year proliferation in data volumes can quickly overwhelm an IT organization. This is much more than a budget problem: Without an effective data storage strategy, an organization is putting a critical resource at risk.
Driving Change of Property and Casualty – Transform Your Customer Experience
INSURERS ARE UNDERSTANDABLY EAGER to differentiate customer experience by automating mobile workforce management—especially when they can also cut operational costs, reduce carbon footprint, and streamline catastrophe response in the process. But this profound transformation in the daily lives of field claims and other mobile workers must be managed carefully to maximize benefits while minimizing disruption for all stakeholders.
The benefits of VCC include centralized desktop and application management, “any device” access to corporate IT resources, an increased ability to protect corporate intellectual property, and demonstrated compliance with industry and governmental regulations.
The frequency of “mega breaches” continues to rise at an alarming rate. In fact, crippling incidents involving tens of millions of customer records, theft of highly valuable intellectual property, and related criminal activity have become commonplace.
This report asserts that many such breaches could be prevented by deploying next-generation endpoint protection technology in concert with an aggressive proactive hunting strategy. This potent combination provides the most effective means to reduce attack surfaces and defend against advanced adversaries.
When it comes to Design for Manufacturing (DFM), it’s never too early to start. Planning ahead and thinking through the entire product lifecycle is the best way to reap all the benefits that come from excellent design — including better part selection, improved product quality, streamlined approvals and cost savings. Start by identifying an experienced Countract Manufacturer (CM) that understands the importance of good DFM and who will work with the product developer at every step.

Communities rely on their local policemen and policewomen to keep them safe, protect their property and preserve the peace. But few citizens really understand the dangers that officers face every day, especially patrolling and answering calls in vehicles or on foot.

From accidents to health emergencies, domestic violence to theft and assaults, police must perform in high-stress, volatile environments and make the right decisions in seconds. And in today’s digital world, everything they do may be recorded and posted online.
